Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: James Oatley Tic Tok Chardonnay 2009
By Tony Aspler
Here’s an Australian Chardonnay that has lots of flavour at a very affordable price. It’s pale lemon in colour with a nose of apple and tobacco leaf. The sweet, spicy fruit has a whisper of vanilla oak, nicely balanced with lemony acidity. Good value, and it’s on sale at the LCBO until July 22.
Food match: seafood pasta or roast chicken
$13.45, LCBO #187104
